WHAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU?
As with most things in life, there is no right or wrong, and how many gears you may need is no different.
However, we have tried to offer some guidance to help you narrow it down based on your preference, terrain, and most requested riding spots.
Do you want the security and simplicity of a 1x groupset?
Or are you more of a long distance, varied terrain rider who likes to be prepared for anything the world has to throw at you?
